Excellent for Turbo

" Excellent choice for turbo applications where oil pressure can rise quickly.
I'm using this on a modified 300ZX Twin Turbo and have no worries because of the performance and quality of the filter. The higher flow rate helps protect the engine and turbos from the quick heat build up in the summer months.
A Nissan Master Mechanic told me that he was surprised that my turbos were in very good condition. He also believes the filter is a good choice for high performance cars. "
Pros: K&N quality
Cons: Nothing so far
